How to get to high speed train in Istanbul?


High speed train to Ankara has opened. But Pendik is far away from city center. Direct access with one public transport service is not possible from most of the major regions in Istanbul. And there are many different combinations. Therefore you have to decide which way to chose from several alternatives.

Here are simplest ways to go to Pendik High Speed Train Station by public transport from major regions of Istanbul (Last update: August 2017):

    • M1 is now connected to Marmaray. So, for alternative 2 of Ataturk Airport, instead of bus, you can take M1 to Yenikapi. Less than 1 hour to Ayrilikcesmesi from airport. The last step by bus may take up to 1 hour depending on the traffic.

  1. Hi,
    Can anyone advise as to what the time taken would be for Alternatives 1 and 2 from both Taksim and Sultanahmet?

    I need to get to Eskisehir from Taksim/Sultanahmet, which is a better option, bus or high speed train? Even if a little more expensive, I would like to take the option that takes less time as I’m only spending 2 days in Turkey and don’t want to spend much time on travel. Thank you very much in advance for all your help.

    Best regards,
    Sandeep

  2. the fastest way no matter how traffic is, using marmaray (sirkeci-ayrilikcesmesi) + metro (ayrilikcesmesi-kartal) and bus (kartal-pendik).. if you pass bridge by bus, travel time is totally unknown..

  3. Hello.

    I plan on taking the high speed train to Eskisehir. Which bus is it from Kartal to Pendik? Any other information about the bus system would be helpful also.

  4. Hello,

    I read it somewhere that PENDIK AND kAYNARCA Stations are already in operation on Metro line M4 . And it’s only a 10 minutes ride by taxi from Kaynarca station to Sabiha Gökçen Airport. Is this really true?

    • Could you tell me if there is a bus from Kartal Metro station to S. Gokcen Airport (and how long is it in operation on Saturdays)?
      If there is no bus, can I get a taxi to Gokcen Airport and what would it cost from Kartal?

      Thank you

  5. Hi, just after some update…
    Quickest way to get to Pendik station from Ataturk airport.

    Thanks!

  6. Can one take a high speed train from Ataturk Airport to to Sabiha Gökçen l . Or what is the best way to travel?

  7. I just love “running around” in Turkey and book as I go along. I am fortunate to have a sister in Istanbul. Have not used the YHT yet, so eager to go out to Ankara from Pendik. I also fly to Sabiha lately as it is a lot easier to get to my sister and to get to other cities in Turkey. Used the long distance bus services to different cities as I did not explore YHT option. Should be doing a lot more travelling in Turkey now if YHT prices are good.

  8. What time does the train leave for KONYA from the Pendik station. Is there a site where I can book the tickets? If so, please share the link asap. I will be leaving tomorrow for Konya so please respond

  9. Hi,

    What would be the best way to get to Pendik with our backpacks from Sirkeci Station?
    Thanks a lot for this page anyway!

    • Use Sultanahmet solution. Simple, fast, reliable. No need to get the tram to go to Sirkeci station, if you are already at Sirkeci.. 🙂

  10. I see you don’t monetize your website, don’t waste your traffic, you can earn extra cash every month because you’ve got high quality content.

  12. My flight will reach SG Airport at around 8.00 pm and I wish to visit Cappadocia via Ankara with high speed train, what time does the train station close and open in Pendik YHT Gar, how much does it cost.

  13. Hi there, we are taking the night train from Sofia to Istanbul and arriving into Halkali at 7:40am – we then need to travel to Pendik to take the train to ankara. Could you advise us the best way to travel from Halkali to Pendik and roughly how long it would take? The information online tells me different things! Thanks very much!
